Having a disability can sometimes make one feel isolated and alone. These feelings can also affect parents and carers of those with disabilities. Thankfully, Life Skills in Macarthur can help with classes that provide opportunities to meet friends, learn skills, and give you the opportunity to interact more with your community.

Our Life Skills Macarthur program is designed for people ages 18-65 years and older, and is an all disability group. This important support program provides benefits that will help clients cultivate independence and develop skills required to live life to the fullest, such as:

Learn important life skills like healthy cooking, cleaning, or riding public transport

Develop social skills for meaningful interaction, fun, and friendship

Time for carers to tend to other family members or to simply recharge

Life Can Be Overwhelming, and May Feel More Overwhelming for People with Disabilities

For people with disabilities and their carers who are unable to work, social withdraw and anxiety become factors when not engaging with others. Feeling isolated can make life more difficult and we understand that life can be overwhelming, which is why we’re here to help.

Our Life Skills program at Disability Macarthur was created to support adults with disabilities and provide opportunities to improve their social and practical skill sets leading to greater independence and confidence. Our professional facilitators provide stability and compassion as we help our clients learn how to navigate everyday life skills.

Where Do You Want to Go? Expand Your World with More Community Interaction…

Our clients learn life skills such as how to create a shopping list and then go to the market to work towards more confidence about shopping. Other topics include healthy cooking, personal hygiene, or cleaning.

We offer practical skill development with outings where you can learn to go to libraries and take a book, ride public transportation, purchase a train ticket, or even go to the local gym. These skills are reinforced with consistency, which helps our clients to learn to function outside of the home.

Practical skills may include real life, light job skills with hands-on approaches. For example, we have partnerships with local businesses such as Mother Hubbard’s Cupboard where our clients have an opportunity to shop, help sort books, and learn to stack things on shelves.

Our community partnerships with a range of local businesses provide hands-on skills and training in a variety of settings. Clients receive many opportunities to explore their interests and discover their talents.

The Life Skills program helps clients develop independence and provide an opportunity for real interaction. They have the opportunity to develop skill sets that can help them in everyday life to prepare them for real life situations.

Real Success Happens Here

Of course, each client is unique, and we understand that, which is why we limit our space to no more than 12 people. This allows the facilitators to focus on each client and their specific needs so they integrate and feel comfortable.

The more someone comes to the Life Skills Macarthur program, the greater chance of developing the skills needed to achieve more independence.

One success story includes a client who participated in the gym program. He eventually joined the gym on his own, outside of our program, and began going two days each week, independently.

We have also had clients who enjoyed travel learn to navigate train routes, and now enjoy riding trains with confidence and more independence.
